This article aims to increase awareness about the utility of 18F -FDG-PET/CT in the evaluation of cranial nerve (CN) pathology. We discuss the clinical implication of detecting perineural tumor spread, emphasize the primary and secondary 18F -FDG-PET/CT findings of CN pathology, and illustrate the individual 18F -FDG-PET/CT CN anatomy and pathology of 11 of the 12 CNs.
